The Ministry of Public Administration (MAP) and the General Directorate of the Budget (DIGEPRES), issued circular DGP-SAL-2022-00183, dated July 20, 2022, which restricts the entry or movement of personnel and salary readjustments that represent increases in the line of remuneration in the institutions that make up the public administration.

The decision was taken as part of the measures adopted to rationalize public spending.

“The MAP and the DIGEPRES, in their capacity as governing bodies of the civil service and of the budget system, are kind enough to inform you that from this date the procedures for personnel income or movement are restricted, as well as salary readjustments that imply increases in the line of remunerations for the remainder of this year, and therefore that have an impact in the 2023 period, except for those entities or bodies that, by their nature, merit it, and that have the proper authorization from both the MAP and the the DIGEPRES”, indicates the circular signed by the Minister of Public Administration, Darío Castillo Lugo, and the General Director of the Budget, José Rijo Presbot.
